The Mekons or Mekons, as it is sometimes written on their albums and Spotify, are an English band. Fear and Whiskey is their fourth album. The album is a mixture of country music and punk rock, making it the first alternative country album. This sounds like something I would love to hate.
The songs that caught my attention were “Chivalry“, “Trouble Down South“, “Darkness and Doubt”, and “Country”.
Actually, I think this is oddly interesting. I believe the singer is Tom Greenhalgh. He has a voice that reminds me of The Strokes singer, but the music has the elements of country. It is so weird. I am kind of sort of liking it. I think the album deserves a listen to and its place on the list. 7.5/10.
